From the City of Lynchburg: Beginning Tuesday, May 12 and continuing through Friday, May 15 8:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m. daily, the north and south bound lanes of the Lynchburg Expressway (Route 29) will be closed in the vicinity of the Kemper Street Bridge. Both directions of traffic will be detoured to single lanes via the on and off ramps near the bridge. These road closures are necessary to accommodate the removal of the bridge beams that extend over the Lynchburg Expressway. Emergency vehicles must follow the posted detour routes. Motorists should expect delays while traveling through the area and are reminded to be alert of the traffic pattern changes and temporary construction signs.
